This entertaining georgian romantic farce is the third in a series of five romances featuring the five brothers and sisters of the Sharpe family of Halstead Hall. The heroine of this one is Lady Minerva Sharpe, sister of Oliver, Marquis of Stoneville.

I would strongly recommend that if you are going to read this series you do so in sequence, which is:

1) "The Truth About Lord Stoneville (Hellions of Halstead Hall)" (Oliver's story)
2) "A Hellion in Her Bed (Hellions of Halstead Hall)" (Jarret)
3) This book, "How to woo a reluctant Lady" (Minerva)
4) "To Wed a Wild Lord (The Hellions of Halstead Hall)" (Gabe)
5) "A Lady Never Surrenders (The Hellions of Halstead Hall)" (Celia, due early 2012.)

Lady Minerva is a typical heroine for romances set at the time of, or slightly later than, the regency period, in that she is feisty, fearless, intelligent and determined at a time when women were not encouraged to show themselves to be any of those things. What is not typical is that she writes gothic novels under her real name. This would just about have been possible for a noblewoman in 1825 but would indeed, as it does in the novels, have set tongues wagging. Minerva also frequently re-uses her favourite characters, sometimes bringing back the villain of one group of novels as the hero of another - now who else can we think of who does this?

I really wanted to like this book, as I have been a Sabrina Jeffries reader for years. But for some reason there was something lacking in this book and the series in general. It started out great with "The Truth about Lord Stoneville", then waned a bit with "A Hellion in Her Bed" and now this... I really struggled reading it all the way through. There didn't seem to be enough material for an entire book/series and it felt as if Jeffries had been reaching a little bit for a decent storyline, which is a shame as the character Giles had appeared in her previous series and was already developed a little.
The story in general lacked tension and the roller coaster ride of emotions that I, as a romance reader, expect an author to deliver. It just seemed flat from beginning to end. Hopefully the next book will be better but I shall not pre-order it like I did with this one.

This is Minivera's book, the third book of The Hellions of Halstead Hall series. After seeing her elder brotheres give in to her Grandmothers ultimatum, Minivera feels she has to do something big to get out of getting married. A husband would only control her and stop her from writing her gothic novels she so loves. Masters sees that she needs a husband and seizes the opportunity to try and gain a wife he really wants. The only problem? Minivera loved Masters ever since he held her hand at her parents funeral, only to have her heart broken by him years later. Masters secret double life means that he cannot explain his actions and that he has to live with the rest of society thinking the worst of him.

This book took an often used subject of betrayed youthful love and still managed to make it intresting and fresh. With the added mystery of the death of their parents the Stoneville family are strong characters that you cant help but enjoy reading about.

Lady Minerva Sharpe needs to come up with the perfect plan to thwart her grandmother's plans to cut off her grandchildren unless they marry. And getting herself engaged to a rogue sounds like the perfect plan.

Giles Masters is an extraordinary barrister and a delicious scoundrel - the perfect man to make Gran rescind her plans. But Giles has other reasons for saying yes to Minerva's proposal. He wants her to stop using him as inspiration for her gothic novels, and, he wants to find a way to finally get into her heart.

This is the third book in Jeffries' Hellions of Halstead Hall series coming after The Truth About Lord Stoneville and A Hellion in Her Bed. I suppose that you could read the books independently of each other or out of order but they do have a common storyline of the mystery of the Sharpe parents deaths and I feel these books would be better being read in sequence.

This was Minerva's story and as set up in the last two books, her hero is the delightful rake, Giles Masters. Both characters were well rounded and had great depth - Minerva as the strong woman and Giles as the seducer and rogue. They worked together well and I liked the chemistry between the couple.

The mystery of the death of Minerva's parents is still to be solved and I assume that it will get a step closer in the next book which will be Gabe's story (the beginning of which was started in this book).
